I am honest and outspoken. I say what I mean and mean what I say, and I expect the same in return. I consider excessive attempts to sugar-coat or dance around the issues as disrespectful. However, I do appreciate a well-meant attempt to speak the truth with kindness, as long as the point is clearly made. I value authenticity avove sentimentality.I need peace, quiet, and plenty of space. The Hobbit in me hates being rushed. I am motivated by imagination, not ambition. I don't fuss much over clothes, hair, make-up, etc.; I prefer to spend my energy exploring and enjoying my rich inner world. I don�t own (or want) expensive jewelry, but my bookshelves overflow.
I have little tolerance for rudeness, incivility, ignorance or stupidity; but I love a good, harmless laugh. I have little respect for cowardice, but I do understand how paralyzing fear can be. I abhor brutal, brittle bullies, but I passionately admire real strength; the kind that allows for firmness with flexibility. I hate soap operas, but I love adventure and true, deeply felt romance. I dislike team sports, but I am fascinated with the dynamics and capabilities of the individual human body.
I am never boring (unless one�s idea of fun must always include booze, bars, drugs, etc.) I rarely drink. I smoke, but being around chain-smokers gives me a headache, and drunks are boring. No street drugs are allowed in my presence. Ever. Period.
I'm single, no kids, free (but not cheap). I have an outstanding original and extended family, several high-quality friends, and many interesting acquaintances and contacts. Be one.
I am literate, imaginative, and intense
